I am very excited to share Whitney and Ricky’s engagement session as they were the winners of our “Love the T-Shirt” Facebook contest back in September! They won a free engagement session and a 16×24″ print for getting the most “likes” for her Facebook picture!
I have to tell you Whitney and Ricky’s proposal story because it is just SO precious! It was July 29, 2011. Ricky arrived home from work around midnight, not an uncommon occurrence being a police officer. With rose petals and an deflated rubber ducky in hand, he quietly snuck into the bathroom and began the preparations. Fast forward to 5:30 am. As Whitney stepped out of bed and made her way to the bathroom she was stopped in her tracks by the feeling of soft flower petals beneath her feet. As she opened the door, she got the surprise of a lifetime! Rose petals were scattered on the floor, the candles were lit, and a giant rubber ducky (now inflated) was floating in the bathtub. On the rubber ducky sat a teddy-bear with a ring in his hand (how could not not love that)! As she turned around she read “Will you marry me” scribed with red crayon on the mirror. It was the most romantic proposal and the best surprise of her life! It doesn’t end there. Ricky went the extra mile and left rose petals along with a very special card in Whitney’s car (good job Ricky)!
A huge thanks to our friends and especially Kathy Del Rosso at Blenheim Vineyards for letting us shoot at this beautiful location. We are so excited for the wedding!
